Charges Brought Against Doctor, Businessman In Lawsuit Lending Scheme

Charges have been filed against a businessman and a doctor who orchestrated a scheme to lure women into surgery that was paid for by lawsuit loans to boost potential settlement values, the New York Times reports.

The scheme, which was first uncovered by the New York Times last April, involved doctors, lawyers and lawsuit lenders who urged women to have their mesh implants surgical removed. The charges were filed by the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Richard P. Donoghue, who said those involved in the scheme “exploited and defrauded women” by “misrepresenting health risks.”
